Many people think of queer films as only existing to serve a small subset of the population. This is nonsense. Queer films focus on universal aspects of the human experience, albeit with an alternative sexual viewpoint. Running from 31st May to 10th June, Outtakes is a unique opportunity to gain an appreciation of areas of society that you may not be familiar with.
